It’s finally time for what I know many of you have been looking forward to – the personal stories of four normal Swedish seers. What’s the best thing to do if you really want to understand a profession, for instance? You listen to those who work within that profession. The final test for good theology and correct teaching is always empirical studies – i.e. to investigate reality.
I have asked three seers to describe how the seer prophetic is expressed in their everyday lives. The first one writes anonymously under the pseudonym “Philippa”, the second one uses only her first name and the third one uses her full name. As I’ve said before, the seer prophetic is so new in Sweden that you take a risk if you decide to be open about your experiences. Therefore, let us honour and listen to these three important voices, because they represent more than themselves. In part 5d I will share my own journey in the seer prophetic.
Hello everyone! Before I begin to tell you a bit about me I want to say “thank you” to David for letting me contribute to his blog, writing about the things God has put on his heart and on mine. But first of all I want to thank God for what He is doing in my life and in everybody else’s lives. His love and power are the greatest treasure anyone can have. The greatest gift of all.
So, who am I? I’m a positive girl in my early 20’s, on fire for God. I come from a non-Christian family, but was lucky enough to be saved by Jesus one and a half years ago. My journey with God so far has been short and intensive, with some really fantastic periods and some tougher ones. All of them have been meaningful in their own unique way, though.
God has really spoiled me when it comes to gifts, which is something I’m very grateful for. Only God knows exactly what His calling on my life is, but I do know that the gifts He’s given me are part of this calling. This is definitely true for one gift in particular, a gift that is always active in my life: the seer prophetic. I’m far from an expert, but in my short life I have had a great deal of experience in this area. Below is my story.
I have been active within the seer prophetic for a long time without realizing it, or rather without understanding what it really is. That understanding I got only after I became a Christian. So now I know that the “ghosts” that I saw when I was little really were something completely different, but that is too long a story to tell here. But I have had the gift to see into the spiritual reality and interact with it since I was a child. Being able to see what’s happening in the spiritual reality has made me realize how important it is to remind ourselves of how real this realm is and how much it affects us. Denying this and the people who are active in the gift of seeing means we’re giving the dark side power that it’s not entitled to.
Although this gift has been present in my life for a long time, I haven’t really been active in it until a month after I became a Christian. I attended a fantastic conference where God was so good, the way only He can be. During those days He changed people’s lives, mine inclusive.
During one of the meetings His presence fell upon me so powerfully that I was taken into a trance where the physical world around me disappeared. I could see and feel my body, but I couldn’t use it. While I was lying there I felt how a cross was painted on my forehead and how a great light came towards me. At the same time something started to pull at me, or rather at my spirit. The light grew stronger and stronger until all there was, was this light. Al of a sudden I found myself in a new place, where everything was white and shining. I had a white dress and a red cross painted on my forehead. I walked around for a while, rather disoriented, until I came to a table with some sort of board game on it. And on the chair opposite me someone was sitting. A man radiating such warmth and glory that even my spirit became week at the knees. The man, who was as far from a human as is possible, had long brown hair and the most kind, but at the same time the most authoritative eyes I had ever seen. Can you guess who it was?
Even to this day I have a hard time understanding that it really happened. It’s too big to fathom. But it definitely did happen and God keeps reminding me of it.
So what happened was that I sat down opposite Jesus. And He spoke to me. He told me not to be afraid. He said things no one else but He could know, not even me. He spoke straight into my heart. He answered my questions without me even having to ask them. He told me about things to come, about the journey I now would embark on together with Him and how it would change my life. He talked about obstacles and difficulties ahead. What I would need to sacrifice, but also about the award waiting for me. And how He would be with me. And the promise that everything would be the way He’d planned it as long as I didn’t forget the most important thing: to love the Lord, no matter what.
Exactly what we talked about is something between God and me.
After this I got to spend time with Jesus. I was allowed just to be in his glory and love until He told me it was time to go back. Which I did reluctantly. If I could I would have stayed there in heaven together with Jesus forever. But this time I couldn’t stay. And this is how it all started for me.
After this experience I began to see angels in a way I’d never done before, as well as a lot of other heavenly things, which go far beyond what the human mind can grasp. But with God’s help I could understand it. God also gave me a new, personal angel, which He’d promised me. And to this day God is keeping His promise towards me. Because His promise to us is everlasting.
Apart from the ability to see what’s going on in the unseen reality God also shows me a lot of things through pictures and visions. The pictures I get are usually tied to my prophetic gift, which God uses a lot in order to help and equip other people, whereas the visions more have to do with the Church in Sweden and the rest of the world. During my first year as a Christian I have been given everything from smaller visions about me, people around me and my home town to a couple of big and powerful visions which merged together to one big vision about the Kingdom of God worldwide. And something tells me that it’s not finished yet. So I wait patiently for what God is going to show me next.
I wish I could continue with glorious stories like these throughout this whole blog post, but having the ability to see also means that one has the ability to see what’s not good. Thanks to God and my angel I’m able to keep evil powers away from me, to a great extent. But I’m only human and sometimes I can’t shut my eyes to what evil there is. This can be tough and sometimes hard to handle. But I know I’m under God’s protection, so I’m neither worried nor afraid of it.
The seer prophetic gift, however, goes even deeper. Even though I have the ability to control when I want to see and when I don’t, I’m also extremely sensitive. I sense the spiritual atmosphere around people and in different locations very clearly, and this often affects me a lot. And this sensitivity is something I can’t switch off – I live with it constantly. This has its advantages and disadvantages, but it always take a lot of energy from me. This, I would say, is one of the greatest challenges with the seer prophetic gift.
Last winter God introduced a new part in my seer prophetic journey. I haven’t yet embarked on this bit of the journey since it’s so huge I’m not quite sure where to start and since I know it will take a lot of time and energy. At the moment I don’t feel I have the energy, on a mental level, since this new part of the journey goes very deep and includes out-of-the-body travelling. It’s very exciting and I pray that God will lead me on.
The message I want to give to all seer prophets who live in fear is that you are loved. You are important and what you carry is a gift from God. In everything our focus shall be on Him and on what He wants. He has equipped you with the seer prophetic gift for a reason. Use it! That’s why He gave it to you. It’s not for you, but for the Kingdom of God. And to those of you who face the same challenges as I do I want to say: God is stronger than anyone. He is higher than all other powers and He always wins. And finally: you are not alone. Remember this.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. Remember that God is always with you. His love is greater than all. The Lord is greater than all. Amen.
